“Return to paradise”
Reviewed 6 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Yet again, Sophie and Spiros hosted our holiday in their beautiful villa in Kefalonia, now our third visit to this wonderful place, still imacculately kept and with hosts to look after one's every wish. I've never stayed anywhere before that the owners pay such attention to details even attending the swimming pool daily to ensure everything is perfect. This also provides an oppertunity to speak with Sophie and Spiros for restaurant reccommendations and to learn where the best beaches are. Each week Sophie invites all her guests to a meal at her home and for a modest fee provides a great spread and excellent convivial atmosphere for an evening.

“A piece of paradise!”
Reviewed 7 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We traveled as two families and returned a week ago..... Longing not to leave. The villa is beautiful and of a very high standard. It was immaculate, well equipped, perfectly situated and with beautiful pool. Spiros and sophie could not have been kinder in their welcome and are a great source of information about what yo do, where to go and where to avoid. Transfer from airport with hire car so easy and car is essential. We purchased a basket from spiros of his own grown veg and local oil and honey which was all beautiful. The villa is such a treasure as are it's owners and I will certainly recommend it and be back to visit again. Would suit couples, families, groups of friends etc as so well laid out. Thank you sophie and spiros and see you soon. Nicci xx

“Perfectly presented villa in great scenery and well situated for exploring the island”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Villa Sophie certainly lived up to expectations. The property is very clean and tastefully decorated. We were warmly greeted by Spiros at the airport and escorted to the villa. Spiros ensured that our holiday was stress free and fun. The villa is in a great location for exploring the island. There is a small sandy beach a short walk away and a great taverna across the valley about 10 minutes by car
Fantastic! A big thank you to Spiros and Sophie!

“Relaxing holiday, stunning views, excellent hosts”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Overnight travel,tired and wanted my bed, no car booked and how do we find the villa. No problem all taken care of as we were met at the airport by Sophie and Spiros. Only on day two and feel compelled to recommend as all is perfect. If you want peace, tranquillity and a mountain view to due for it's here.

“Perfect September”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

people found this review helpful

We booked our Greece holiday for beginning September, but oh boy..it was the perfect timing and the perfect location. We arrived by car, on a Saturday afternoon, all tired and just wanted to relax. Our group had 5 adults within different age range and 5 kids: one of 4 , one of 9 and one of 10. Expectations were different. I was a bit unsure what we could find, but it was perfect!! Location met our all desires: pool only for us and kids used it every day, all day if they could, a sandy and very nice beach close to then house, a great owner open to answer to all our questions. The house is very clean and very cozy and has all the accessories you may need. It feels like home!! The kitchen is excellent equipped and the owner, Spiros, invited us to use some of this vegetables from the his organic small garden near the house:).
This Ionian island is a wonderful part of Greece to relax, eat extremely well, taste and drink local wines, explore the small cities, admire excellent views like the famous Myrtos beach. It was one of the greatest holiday and this location has all the ingredients to stick to everyone's hearts. Villa Sophie is a great holiday choice and we recommend ii to everyone.
Big thank you to Spiros for all his answers and fo being so open and patience with us.
